  • [01] PRESIDENT PAPADOPOULOS GREECE FIRE

    Cyprus will symbolically take over the reconstruction and equipment of all residences destroyed by the blazes that have been raging across Greece for the past few days, in one of the affected communities, and the restoration of its residents incomes resources, Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos said here today adding that the community to which Cyprus will offer its help will be indicated by the Government of Greece.

    Papadopoulos called on all individuals and organized groups who have the intention to organize fund-raising charities to contribute whatever they can with generosity and love and solidarity with the tried people of Greece to bank accounts to be opened in all banks of Cyprus, and will operate under the supervision of the Government.

    [02] CYPRIOT FIREMEN - VOLUNTEERS - GREECE FIRES

    Deputy Director of Cyprus` Fire Department and chief of the Cypriot mission to Greece Pambos Charalambous told CNA on Monday that the fire in Aliveri of Euboea in Greece, where the Cypriot firemen were sent, was placed under control on Sunday afternoon.

    ``The front we placed under control yesterday afternoon, around 1730 (local time), continues to be under control, despite continuous rekindling, which in some cases was dangerous. We will remain in the area, most probably until tomorrow, because we held this front with great effort. We will keep it until tomorrow to make sure that there is no problem,`` he said.

    Deputy Director of Larnaca District Civil Defence and chief of the Civil Defence mission to Greece Chrysilios Chrysiliou told CNA that there was serious rekindling of the blazes in some areas.

    [03] CHRISTOFIAS - US STANCE

    House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias appeared reserved regarding a possible turn in the US stance on the Cyprus problem, in the light of recent remarks by Undersecretary of State at the US State Department Nicholas Burns and US Ambassador in Nicosia Ronald Schlicher.

    Asked if he saw any shift in the US stance, Christofias said he hoped there would be a change, which would be welcome.

    ``Life itself verifies declarations in practice,`` he pointed out, noting that ``the people of Cyprus, due to the experiences it has, is always rather skeptical when it sees and hears remarks of this king, especially prior to elections.``
